Anyone living in the Northeast knows that it has been Hot and Humid lately. I don't like it. We live closed up with the heat on in the winter. I don't like when I have to close the house up for AC in the summer to be comfortable.
Anyway, enough complaining. When I was looking though my stamps to see what inspired me, this little guy was it. This is one of the free High Hopes stamps I got with my last order. Laying around in an inner tube on the water with a glass of lemonade looked really good to me. It also let me use one of my sunglass brads I bought last year. I love the brads but they never seem to look right on any cards I made. I think it is cute on this card. I added crystal effects to the lemonade and to his glasses to make them look more realistic. I also put glitter on the water to make it glisten. Once I had finished the card I didn't like the empty spaces between the oval and circle die cuts. The dew drops added just enough to the space without making it too busy. I like how the card ended up.
This will be my last post for a few days. Tomorrow I am heading up to the White Mountains in NH for a little R&R. I can't wait. It is beautiful up there. I have a few images colored but have not had the time to make a card. I will be doing that when I get back and will be posting them. I hope everyone has a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by. I hope you like my card.
